Danessa Myricks Light Work III Palette ($125.00 for 0.78 oz.) is a new, limited edition 14-shade palette for the holiday season. It includes a lot of different finishes, including four holographic powders (the larger, white-based shades) that have translucent bases, five multichrome pigments (meaning at least three color shifts), two duochrome gels (very emollient, thin cream-based products), two powder-creams (they feel like denser, creamier powder products), and one pressed glitter (with plastic, or PET, glitter in them).

Psst! You’ll want to click on any shade that catches your eye to see multiple photos if they are a duochrome or multichrome shade! 🙂

Interesting that this is named Light Work III, as the first two in the series are basically just highlighter palettes—totally different concept. Anyway, I like the idea of having several of these kinds of “special” shadows in one palette to complement other palettes/singles, although I’m wary of powders and creams next to each other and find “holographic” to be an inaccurate descriptor for the most basic kind of “duochromes” (interference showing one or two shades with a translucent/white base).

Hi Christine,the colours look very fine and unique, but is the packaging made of cardboard ? if yes I don’t understand the price… for this price I think we can hope to have something more valuable…

Yes, as Christine said, multichromes are expensive, with the average price in the $16-$23/per shadow range and they’re also harder to formulate than one color or even duochrome shadows so they’re almost exclusively sold as singles. Multichromes were created by indie brands and are still rarely found in mainstream brands so if you’re looking to try them, the brands most known for having amazing formulas are Clionadh, Devinah Cosmetics, Terra Moons, Notoriously Morbid and JD Glow.

What would be more valuable? It’s usually cardboard or plastic and rare occasion some kind of metal. Cardboard is better than plastic as far as sustainably goes

Really wish that for a $125, it didn’t have a pressed PET glitter. Other than that, it looks STUNNING! I love that it has a creamy powder black shade that will boost all the duochrome and multi-chrome shadows.

Maybe it’s because they’re everywhere now and I have so many already, but the only shades that interest me in this are the Powder Cream ones.

It feels a little all over the place in terms of curation and quality. Shame, because Danessa usually nails it. (Why a random glitter?) It’s a soft pass on this.

Because single mulitchromes are so expensive and I don’t have any, and I love the variety of colors here, and the Sephora sale is coming up, I can see adding this to my stash if the review is good! The shadow swatches look great for the most part. I won’t use the PET glitter shade, though.

I’ve been waiting for swatches from this palette. I hadn’t noticed the plastic glitter. I don’t have many rules when it comes to makeup, but I refuse to buy a palette that has plastics in it. Yes even if it’s just one and the rest are straight A+. even in a huge palette. I just don’t see the need to add plastic glitter into anything. Maybe just me. but my rule and my money that will not go toward buying this palette.
Thank you so much for the swatches and for the heads up, Christine!

I would have been all over a palette of just the powder shadows, but I just can’t do a creme and powder palette, and one with glitter, especially at that price point.

Nice – but all those pale, white shades in the middle don’t really do it for me, plus Orion – with its glitter and Black Hole (unnecessary black shade) – nope.

i saw kjh use this during her bday week and the colors looked gorgeous, and duo/multichromes are the only category of mu i don’t have an excess of, so i happily snatched it up during the beautylish gift card event. now i’m disappointed to realize it has plastic 😢

This palette is very far outside my comfort zone but it looks amazing and I can definitely see why it’s getting so much hype. Danessa Myricks is an amazing artist and her brand of innovative and creatively curated products really stand out in an oversaturated market.

This is gorgeous, but two things will keep me from purchasing it. Namely the PET glitter (stop. fucking. trashing. the. environment. for. money. there. are. alternative. ingredients. available.). But also I can’t use highlighters with silicones and it bums me out that those shades are available as a separate palette.
